A photo from the beginning of the month when we had a visit from Matteo and his crew from #borranirims! They got a tour of the shop with Kennie and Robert while talking over the finer points of the histories of our two great companies. Good to have them here and we hope they had a wonderful time.

A rare one. The Vanwall that won the 1958 Dutch GP under the command of Sir Stirling Moss. Build stories to be continued...

Continuing the story of the 500 F2. The paint job was a multi-stage experiment. At the beginning, I want to give it a well used after-race look, so on top of the dark brown smoke & splatter layer, I mixed up matte & gloss varnishes to achieve a variety of dried up to wet oil spill features. Those glorious quad exhaust pipes were also given a rust treatment with wet effect on the edge. 
Then the problem begins. I did the smoking layer at night by a desk lamp, which apparently was too dark for a proper judgement. So my effort turned out very over-the-top when the morning sun went up 😂. Good thing was that both the smoke and varnish were water based Vallejo paints, and the base layer was Tamiya lacquer spray paint, so I had no problem removing most of the weathering. 
Little did I expected, this whole process is actually quite commonly used by military modelers to bring out the panel lines and rivets, given that they use oil paint washes instead. So it all turned out alright and made my detailing effort look much more prominent. Lessons learned, I put the custom-made decals on with a light layer of weathering on top of the final gloss coat. And the final result was much closer to what I’d imagined.

It always takes a detour to get where I want, which is the so-called “learning curve” I guess. .

This is the Ferrari 500 F2, specifically the “short nose” version that won the 1952 Grand Prix de Pau, driven by Alberto Ascari. 
This project was my first attempt to build a model completely from home made parts, nothing at all from a kit (except that pair of rear view mirrors... I happen to have some left over chrome parts for road car headlights and they happen to look just right 😂). The body shell was a resin cast I made earlier from the Strombecker Maserati 250F slot car. One of those eBay finds that turned out extremely versatile and spawned many of my other Ferrari Grand Prix builds. It was an early type 250F with very few raised features on the body shell so it was rather clean and adaptable. After some fiddling and cutting, I changed the proportion to be much similar to the Ferrari 500. Amazingly, the basic shape was bang on without any extension or putty job needed, so the rest is just detailing. 
As you can see from the second shot, it’s all old-fashioned styrene work. The rivets are real, made from melting the end of an extra thin styrene rods with candle flame, cutting it off then inserting into the holes. 
The last couple of pics are the wired wheels made from real 0.3mm wires. The only shortcut I took was to avoid the braiding job - I went for a cut-n-glue method which I admit is much boring... After much practice it took only 35 minutes to glue each wheel, but it’s still purely manual labor 😂. I don’t remember whether it was TopGear or something else on Netflix that served as the BGM. 
Since there wasn’t many historical photos of this particular 500 car, and the ones available are blurry black & whites. The main point of reference was the Exoto 1:18 diecast model.
